Update error handling for codepath that deals with corrupt loose objects. * jk/loose-object-info-report-error: index-pack: detect local corruption in collision check sha1_loose_object_info: return error for corrupted objects
2017-04-01index-pack: detect local corruption in collision checkJeff King
When we notice that we have a local copy of an incoming object, we compare the two objects to make sure we haven't found a collision. Before we get to the actual object bytes, though, we compare the type and size from sha1_object_info(). If our local object is corrupted, then the type will be OBJ_BAD, which obviously will not match the incoming type, and we'll report "SHA1 COLLISION FOUND" (with capital letters and everything). This is confusing, as the problem is not a collision but rather local corruption. We should report that instead (just like we do if reading the rest of the object content fails a few lines later). Note that we _could_ just ignore the error and mark it as a non-collision. That would let you "git fetch" to replace a corrupted object. But it's not a very reliable method for repairing a repository. The earlier want/have negotiation tries to get the other side to omit objects we already have, and it would not realize that we are "missing" this corrupted object. So we're better off complaining loudly when we see corruption, and letting the user take more drastic measures to repair (like making a full clone elsewhere and copying the pack into place). Note that the test sets transfer.unpackLimit in the receiving repository so that we use index-pack (which is what does the collision check). Normally for such a small push we'd use unpack-objects, which would simply try to write the loose object, and discard the new one when we see that there's already an old one.

2017-03-30replace unchecked snprintf calls with heap buffersJeff King
We'd prefer to avoid unchecked snprintf calls because truncation can lead to unexpected results. These are all cases where truncation shouldn't ever happen, because the input to snprintf is fixed in size. That makes them candidates for xsnprintf(), but it's simpler still to just use the heap, and then nobody has to wonder if "100" is big enough. We'll use xstrfmt() where possible, and a strbuf when we need the resulting size or to reuse the same buffer in a loop. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2017-03-28odb_mkstemp: write filename into strbufJeff King
The odb_mkstemp() function expects the caller to provide a fixed buffer to write the resulting tempfile name into. But it creates the template using snprintf without checking the return value. This means we could silently truncate the filename. In practice, it's unlikely that the truncation would end in the template-pattern that mkstemp needs to open the file. So we'd probably end up failing either way, unless the path was specially crafted. The simplest fix would be to notice the truncation and die. However, we can observe that most callers immediately xstrdup() the result anyway. So instead, let's switch to using a strbuf, which is easier for them (and isn't a big deal for the other 2 callers, who can just strbuf_release when they're done with it). Note that many of the callers used static buffers, but this was purely to avoid putting a large buffer on the stack. We never passed the static buffers out of the function, so there's no complicated memory handling we need to change. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2017-03-28do not check odb_mkstemp return value for errorsJeff King
The odb_mkstemp function does not return an error; it dies on failure instead. But many of its callers compare the resulting descriptor against -1 and die themselves. Mostly this is just pointless, but it does raise a question when looking at the callers: if they show the results of the "template" buffer after a failure, what's in it? The answer is: it doesn't matter, because it cannot happen. So let's make that clear by removing the bogus error checks. In bitmap_writer_finish(), we can drop the error-handling code entirely. In the other two cases, it's shared with the open() in another code path; we can just move the error-check next to that open() call. And while we're at it, let's flesh out the function's docstring a bit to make the error behavior clear. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <>
2017-03-16index-pack: make pointer-alias fallbacks saferJeff King
The final() function accepts a NULL value for certain parameters, and falls back to writing into a reusable "name" buffer, and then either: 1. For "keep_name", requiring all uses to do "keep_name ? keep_name : name.buf". This is awkward, and it's easy to accidentally look at the maybe-NULL keep_name. 2. For "final_index_name" and "final_pack_name", aliasing those pointers to the "name" buffer. This is easier to use, but the aliased pointers become invalid after the buffer is reused (this isn't a bug now, but it's a potential pitfall). One way to make this safer would be to introduce an extra pointer to do the aliasing, and have its lifetime match the validity of the "name" buffer. But it's still easy to accidentally use the wrong name (i.e., to use "final_pack_name" instead of the aliased pointer). Instead, let's use three separate buffers that will remain valid through the function. That makes it safe to alias the pointers and use them consistently. The extra allocations shouldn't matter, as this function is not performance sensitive. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2017-03-16replace snprintf with odb_pack_name()Jeff King
In several places we write the name of the pack filename into a fixed-size buffer using snprintf(), but do not check the return value. As a result, a very long object directory could cause us to quietly truncate the pack filename (potentially leading to a corrupted repository, as a newly written packfile could be missing its .pack extension). We can use odb_pack_name() to do this with a strbuf (and shorten the code, as well). Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2017-03-16odb_pack_keep(): stop generating keepfile nameJeff King
The odb_pack_keep() function generates the name of a .keep file and opens it. This has two problems: 1. It requires a fixed-size buffer to create the filename and doesn't notice when the result is truncated. 2. Of the two callers, one sometimes wants to open a filename it already has, which makes things awkward (it has to do so manually, and skips the leading-directory creation). Instead, let's have odb_pack_keep() just open the file. Generating the name isn't hard, and a future patch will switch callers over to odb_pack_name() anyway.

2016-12-16index-pack: skip collision check when not in repositoryJeff King
You can run "git index-pack path/to/foo.pack" outside of a repository to generate an index file, or just to verify the contents. There's no point in doing a collision check, since we obviously do not have any objects to collide with. The current code will blindly look in .git/objects based on the result of setup_git_env(). That effectively gives us the right answer (since we won't find any objects), but it's a waste of time, and it conflicts with our desire to eventually get rid of the "fallback to .git" behavior of setup_git_env().

However, --stdin mode will write the result to the object database, which does not make sense outside of a repository.

2016-07-20receive-pack: send keepalives during quiet periodsJeff King
After a client has sent us the complete pack, we may spend some time processing the data and running hooks. If the client asked us to be quiet, receive-pack won't send any progress data during the index-pack or connectivity-check steps. And hooks may or may not produce their own progress output. In these cases, the network connection is totally silent from both ends. Git itself doesn't care about this (it will wait forever), but other parts of the system (e.g., firewalls, load-balancers, etc) might hang up the connection. So we'd like to send some sort of keepalive to let the network and the client side know that we're still alive and processing. We can use the same trick we did in 05e9515 (upload-pack: send keepalive packets during pack computation, 2013-09-08). Namely, we will send an empty sideband data packet every `N` seconds that we do not relay any stderr data over the sideband channel. As with 05e9515, this means that we won't bother sending keepalives when there's actual progress data, but will kick in when it has been disabled (or if there is a lull in the progress data). The concept is simple, but the details are subtle enough that they need discussing here. Before the client sends us the pack, we don't want to do any keepalives. We'll have sent our ref advertisement, and we're waiting for them to send us the pack (and tell us that they support sidebands at all). While we're receiving the pack from the client (or waiting for it to start), there's no need for keepalives; it's up to them to keep the connection active by sending data. Moreover, it would be wrong for us to do so. When we are the server in the smart-http protocol, we must treat our connection as half-duplex. So any keepalives we send while receiving the pack would potentially be buffered by the webserver. Not only does this make them useless (since they would not be delivered in a timely manner), but it could actually cause a deadlock if we fill up the buffer with keepalives. (It wouldn't be wrong to send keepalives in this phase for a full-duplex connection like ssh; it's simply pointless, as it is the client's responsibility to speak). As soon as we've gotten all of the pack data, then the client is waiting for us to speak, and we should start keepalives immediately. From here until the end of the connection, we send one any time we are not otherwise sending data. But there's a catch. Receive-pack doesn't know the moment we've gotten all the data. It passes the descriptor to index-pack, who reads all of the data, and then starts resolving the deltas. We have to communicate that back. To make this work, we instruct the sideband muxer to enable keepalives in three phases: 1. In the beginning, not at all. 2. While reading from index-pack, wait for a signal indicating end-of-input, and then start them. 3. Afterwards, always. The signal from index-pack in phase 2 has to come over the stderr channel which the muxer is reading. We can't use an extra pipe because the portable run-command interface only gives us stderr and stdout. Stdout is already used to pass the .keep filename back to receive-pack. We could also send a signal there, but then we would find out about it in the main thread. And the keepalive needs to be done by the async muxer thread (since it's the one writing sideband data back to the client). And we can't reliably signal the async thread from the main thread, because the async code sometimes uses threads and sometimes uses forked processes. Therefore the signal must come over the stderr channel, where it may be interspersed with other random human-readable messages from index-pack. This patch makes the signal a single NUL byte. This is easy to parse, should not appear in any normal stderr output, and we don't have to worry about any timing issues (like seeing half the signal bytes in one read(), and half in a subsequent one). This is a bit ugly, but it's simple to code and should work reliably. Another option would be to stop using an async thread for muxing entirely, and just poll() both stderr and stdout of index-pack from the main thread. This would work for index-pack (because we aren't doing anything useful in the main thread while it runs anyway). But it would make the connectivity check and the hook muxers much more complicated, as they need to simultaneously feed the sub-programs while reading their stderr. The index-pack phase is the only one that needs this signaling, so it could simply behave differently than the other two. That would mean having two separate implementations of copy_to_sideband (and the keepalive code), though. And it still doesn't get rid of the signaling; it just means we can write a nicer message like "END_OF_INPUT" or something on stdout, since we don't have to worry about separating it from the stderr cruft. One final note: this signaling trick is only done with index-pack, not with unpack-objects. There's no point in doing it for the latter, because by definition it only kicks in for a small number of objects, where keepalives are not as useful (and this conveniently lets us avoid duplicating the implementation).

2016-07-20index-pack: add flag for showing delta-resolution progressJeff King
The index-pack command has two progress meters: one for "receiving objects", and one for "resolving deltas". You get neither by default, or both with "-v". But for a push through receive-pack, we would want only the "resolving deltas" phase, _not_ the "receiving objects" progress. There are two reasons for this. One is simply that existing clients are already printing "writing objects" progress at the same time. Arguably "receiving" from the far end is more useful, because it tells you what has actually gotten there, as opposed to what might be stuck in a buffer somewhere between the client and server. But that would require a protocol extension to tell clients not to print their progress. Possible, but complexity for little gain. The second reason is much more important. In a full-duplex connection like git-over-ssh, we can print progress while the pack is incoming, and it will immediately get to the client. But for a half-duplex connection like git-over-http, we should not say anything until we have received the full request. Anything we write is subject to being stuck in a buffer by the webserver. Worse, we can end up in a deadlock if that buffer fills up. So our best bet is to avoid writing anything that isn't a small fixed size until we've received the full pack.

As we create the .keep file with O_CREAT|O_EXCL, and we do so after we write the .idx file, we luckily do not clobber the .idx file, but because we deliberately ignored EEXIST when creating .keep file (which is justifiable because only the existence of .keep file matters), nobody noticed this mistake so far.

2016-02-25nth_packed_object_offset: bounds-check extended offsetJeff King
If a pack .idx file has a corrupted offset for an object, we may try to access an offset in the .idx or .pack file that is larger than the file's size. For the .pack case, we have use_pack() to protect us, which realizes the access is out of bounds. But if the corrupted value asks us to look in the .idx file's secondary 64-bit offset table, we blindly add it to the mmap'd index data and access arbitrary memory. We can fix this with a simple bounds-check compared to the size we found when we opened the .idx file. Note that there's similar code in index-pack that is triggered only during "index-pack --verify". To support both, we pull the bounds-check into a separate function, which dies when it sees a corrupted file. It would be nice if we could return an error, so that the pack code could try to find a good copy of the object elsewhere. Currently nth_packed_object_offset doesn't have any way to return an error, but it could probably use "0" as a sentinel value (since no object can start there). This is the minimal fix, and we can improve the resilience later on top. Signed-off-by: Jeff King <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

When c6458e60 (index-pack: kill union delta_base to save memory, 2015-04-18) attempted to reduce the memory footprint of index-pack, one of the key thing it did was to keep track of ref-deltas and ofs-deltas separately. In fix_unresolved_deltas(), however it forgot that it now wants to look only at ref deltas in one place. The code allocated an array for nr_unresolved, which is sum of number of ref- and ofs-deltas minus nr_resolved, which may be larger or smaller than the number ref-deltas. Depending on nr_resolved, this was either under or over allocating. Also, the old code before this change had to use 'i' and 'n' because some of the things we see in the (old) deltas[] array we scanned with 'i' would not make it into the sorted_by_pos[] array in the old world order, but now because you have only ref delta in a separate ref_deltas[] array, they increment lock&step. We no longer need separate variables. And most importantly, we shouldn't pass the nr_unresolved parameter, as this number does not play a role in the working of this helper function.

Just like the diff machinery, we are about to introduce more settings, therefore it makes sense to carry them around as a (pointer to a) struct containing all of them. Signed-off-by: Johannes Schindelin <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>

An earlier optimization broke index-pack for a large object transfer; this fixes it before the breakage hits any released version. * nd/slim-index-pack-memory-usage: index-pack: fix truncation of off_t in comparison
2015-06-09index-pack: avoid excessive re-reading of pack directoryJeff King
Since 45e8a74 (has_sha1_file: re-check pack directory before giving up, 2013-08-30), we spend extra effort for has_sha1_file to give the right answer when somebody else is repacking. Usually this effort does not matter, because after finding that the object does not exist, the next step is usually to die(). However, some code paths make a large number of has_sha1_file checks which are _not_ expected to return 1. The collision test in index-pack.c is such a case. On a local system, this can cause a performance slowdown of around 5%. But on a system with high-latency system calls (like NFS), it can be much worse. This patch introduces a "quick" flag to has_sha1_file which callers can use when they would prefer high performance at the cost of false negatives during repacks. There may be other code paths that can use this, but the index-pack one is the most obviously critical, so we'll start with switching that one.

2015-06-04index-pack: fix truncation of off_t in comparisonJeff King
Commit c6458e6 (index-pack: kill union delta_base to save memory, 2015-04-18) refactored the comparison functions used in sorting and binary searching our delta list. The resulting code does something like: int cmp_offsets(off_t a, off_t b) { return a - b; } This works most of the time, but produces nonsensical results when the difference between the two offsets is larger than what can be stored in an "int". This can lead to unresolved deltas if the packsize is larger than 2G (even on 64-bit systems, an int is still typically 32 bits): $ git clone git:// Cloning into 'gecko-dev'... remote: Counting objects: 4800161, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (178/178), done. remote: Total 4800161 (delta 88), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 4799978 Receiving objects: 100% (4800161/4800161), 2.21 GiB | 3.26 MiB/s, done.
